Apples & Pecans for Sale

   We now have some high-quality pecans we grew for sale, of named varieties with larger nuts.  Cracked 'Kanza' pecans are sold in 5-pound bags for $14.86 plus tax.  After cracking, loose shell fragments were blown out, so each 5-pound bag holds an amount equal to 6 pounds of in-shell pecans.  We also have some large in-shell (uncracked) 'Pawnee' pecans for sale at $2.32 per pound plus tax.
Cracked 'Kanza' pecans (right plate) are sold in 5-pound bags (rear).  'Pawnee' pecans (left plate) are sold in-shell (uncracked) by the pound.
   We also still have many 'Enterprise' and 'GoldRush' apples for sale, kept in top condition in our cooler.  Apple prices are still $1.00 less for each 20 lbs. than last fall.  Smaller amounts of harvested #1 apples are still $1.21 per pound + tax, but 20 lbs. #1's are now just $22.29 + tax ($1.11 per pound), and 40 lbs. #1's are just $42.73 + tax ($1.06 per pound).  Lesser amounts of harvested #2 apples are still $0.83 per pound + tax, but 20 lbs. #2's are now just $14.86 + tax ($0.74 per pound), and 40 lbs. #2's are just $27.87 + tax ($0.70 per pound).  You can also get the 40-lb. discount by buying 20 lbs. #1's and 20 lbs. #2's.

We also still have many 'Enterprise' (red) and 'GoldRush' (yellow) apples for sale, kept in top condition in our cooler. 
      We'll have apples and pecans for sale for the next 3 to 4 months, and from Dec. 1 to May 31 we're open by appointment, so call or e-mail a day or so in advance and leave a message saying when you're coming to get apples and/or pecans.  The phone rings in the house, and I check for messages every few hours, but on warmer days I'll be pruning in the orchards or sorting apples in the sales building.  For highway detour directions, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on "Older Posts".
